I called Audra back and we set up an appointment at 1:45 this afternoon, I will adjust her and she will wax me. Sounds like a lovely afternoon doesn't it? I warned Audra that the kids would be with me and made sure that this would be okay her, she said no problem.
I explained to the kids that we were going to see Audra and she wa going to spread hot wax on my eyebrows and bikini area and cover the wax with cloth strips and then pull my hair out. "Can we watch?" was the first thing out of their mouths, followed closely by "Why?"
How do you explain why we do this to ourselves to the young and uninitiated? I did my best to explain why I was willing to put myself through this process and I told them yes, of course they could watch. I never even thought about it.
So there I am at Audra's and she is standing at the head of the table, I am laying face up and she is applying wax to my
Yes, they watched the bikini wax too, the boys are only 4 and 2 and PJ at 3 years old may as well know what the future holds for her (especially if she ends up hairy like her Daddy). I wondered, for a split second afterwards if it was appropiate to let them watch but it's not like the boys are 15 or anything and they shower and hot tub with Paul and I all the time.
Nudity is normal around this house, one day last week the kids went from pajamas to birthday suits. Paul came home from work and Sebastian ran up to him, "Daddy, we didn't have to wear clothes all day!" WHOOT! No Laundry! This was a great day in my book, I did not have to stain spot anything, the red sauce washed right off the kids. I will be sad when the day comes that my children become self conscious of their bodies.
I remember last summer the kids were naked so much that when we went out for a walk and I made them put some clothes on, our next door neighbor came out and said, "Hey Sebastian, is that you? I did not recognize you with your clothes on."
So the question remains, did I scar them for life letting them watch a bikini and eyebrow wax? I don't think so, but we will see if they have any nightmares tonight. Bikini wax anyone?
